Mathematics and Science Research Alliance


The Mathematics and Science Research Alliance (MSRA) works with state education agency  coordinators in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), leaders from state mathematics and science professional organizations, and interested educators to provide guidance and insight into important issues, such as curriculum, instructional materials, assessments, and teacher evaluation, which affect STEM disciplines in the Central states.

 Research Questions

  • In what ways is the K–12 education system responding to changes in standards, curriculum, instruction, and assessment in STEM disciplines at the school, district, and state levels?
  • What job-embedded professional development models support changes in teacher practice in mathematics and science?
  • What issues continue to pose challenges for mathematics and science educators in the REL Central region around implementation of state academic standards?
